candidate elizabeth warren. i use the word desperate on purpose. after releasing one ad attacking elizabeth warren on the basis of race, after his staffers were caught childishly mocking native americans with the whole tomahawk chop and after the cherokee nation asked scott brown to apologize for that and he refused to do so, after all that scott brown has put out another ad today again attacking elizabeth warren on the ground of race. they must have some poll numbers showing a race based campaign is working wonders for him. it's not a whisper campaign, anonymous flyers on windshields like we used to expect. this comes straight from the campaign unapologetically. just to be clear as a bell about what the story is. it's not that scott brown has ever disproven or anybody has ever disproven that elizabeth warren has native american ancestry. it's not been disproven. it's not a lie. scott brown's whole beef with her, the whole basis for his u.s. senate campaign against her based on race is that he thinks she doesn't look native american to him. these eyeballs don't lie. >> professor warren clai

and missouri. >> massachusetts scott brown and elizabeth warren has turned out to be the weirdest race in the country. >> don't understand why he went after this issue and so far has not backed down. he's still talking about what she did or did not say about her own ethnic heritage. >> this was an issue earl hi on in the campaign. scott brown went early very hard against elizabeth warren on the basis of race. and while it got a lot of national attention, sort of everything he does gets national attention. sort of a darling of the beltway media and so he gets a lot of attention for what he does. he got a lot of press for it but didn't get any movement in the polls. polling pretty well and consistently throughout and then he took a dive. she gave that well received speech to the democratic convention polls generally turned even more strongly toward the democrats he ended up losing in four straight polls in massachusetts and then all of a sudden he's put her race back as the main reason to vote against her. he has never disproven that she is native american. he says essentially look at he
is a battleground state, however, president obama is up 54%. not very battlegroundy. and elizabeth warren did very well last night in the debate. did you see the senator told. they are like who is your favorite supreme court justice, he is not scalia? [ booing ] >> stephanie: i was looking for dr. flornharn. >> justice chastro. >> stephanie: i don't even really know who they are. but "politico" wrote a piece the parallel universe that now mitt romney leads all of the polls. because the polls are all wrong. >> of course. >> stephanie: lee in mississippi. hi, lee. >> caller: hi stephanie. i listen to you on occasion but just was curious about what your response was -- or would be to president obama's response to the attack that occurred on american embassy, and his decision to go on television that night basically as -- i think his comment was, i'm just here for eye candy. and was that appropriate? your opinion? >> stephanie: are you talking about his appearance on "the view"? >> yes. >> stephanie: that wasn't at night. well, i think he should have spoken more prematurely like mit
-read opinion page. katrina vanden heuvel in "the washington post" writes this. elizabeth warren, the people's champion. >> i'm sorry, go ahead. go ahead. no, it's all right. i was just thinking about a joke i heard yesterday. go ahead. >> throughout the campaign, mark halperin, warren has delivered an unabashed populist message. she first made the common-sense case that no one succeeded alone. that successful businesspeople depend on what we've built together, an educated work force, roads and transport to deliver their products, a rule of law vital to working markets. this isn't a radical notion, but when adopted and badly phrased by president obama, it sparked the frenzied republican "we built it" campaign. warren will focus on the core issues and ask massachusetts voters to decide who is on their side. and if she wins, she'll not only lead a new generation of progressive reformers into the senate, but also begin to teach democrats how to fight for working people once more." mark? >> vanden heuvel, not ratner, on that. >> not ratner. >> we don't have ratner here to dispute. >> just to gam
